Have a very nasty case of permagrump going on. Back issues are causing me horrible, breakthrough pain and just do not have much relief in sight. At least I have a distraction of sorts with this 'cool weather' that is settling in. The transplants here are really whining and sniveling. Babies.
Posting will be erratic at best from me. I have emails to answer and I am surprised Nick has not harassed me about the one I owe him.
Everyone seems to hate this weather except me but then I touched in the head as they say, oh well. I think I will go and clean all my guns. Thanks Andrea, for the fine music.
Here is the latest update from NOAA/NWS.
When the NWS is calling for zero or below here, it is always colder by a few degrees. That -5 to -15 mentioned below? Very real where we are might get even colder. Nothing like wood heat! PatriotUSA
